I'm sure Marillion have just as many bands influenced by them as PT does(or at least close). I can't think of many off the top of my head though but I know they are out there. Can anyone list them?

I might think early Marillion influenced Steven Wilson......It's a tough one as Marillion did not form till 79/80, right around punk and big hair metal bands starting.

I think Pallas were more or less contemporaries of Marillion so I don't seem them being influenced by them but rather they both had the same influences(ie Genesis, Yes, Pink Floyd, etc.).

I wonder whether every Marillion influence can actually be traced back further, particularly to Genesis? But then I'm not that keen on Marillion or anything that is branded as influenced by them, so maybe that's just ignorant!?

Hi,

I'm not sure that this is quite right ... Chappo did not get influenced by Joe Cocker ... and I doubt that FISH was influenced by PG at all ... and like a few other singers leading a band in Europe, it many ways it was more about the ACTING than it was about the singing. PG is given a lot of credit for some of this but others were already doing THEATER within a rock context in Europe that helped bring it all alive.

I think we're making a mess of things ... it's like saying that every actor copied Lawrence Olivier and/or Marlon Brando, and that is simply not true at all, although it seems the material at the time suggests that there is a similarity. I don't see, another great example, that ANGE copied anyone, including bands like GENESIS which probably learned from them how to do some theatrical content on stage ... already in concert Christian Decamps was whispering and doing emotional stuff that was way beyond "singing", and to further things in a couple of his solo albums he takes this even further and makes folks like Fish and PG sound like just another pop singer!

Europe, other than England, has a very large history of "stories" in theater, and mixing them ... and what PG did was nothing new and there are many stories that they learned some of it from OSANNA in Italy during a tour. I doubt that PG or GENESIS would even discuss that, so to be able to maintain a myth of originators of something they did not create, but the fact of the matter is, that they DID CREATE some very nice material with those ideas in mind, and that it worked to an extent, in that we are still stuck discussing it. At least the music is very good to our ears, whereas OSANNA and ANGE are a bit tougher, and mostly because they do not sing in English, as the material itself is excellent.

To see these things properly, a chronology would help ... but to think that PG created something that everyone copied, and Marillion did as well, is kinda sad, and missing the point. Again, think about the actors, the films, the theater ... please allow talent to stand up ... and not kill the arts because of it.
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now try finding your own mirror/art! www.pedrosena.com

supposedly they influenced Collage and Clepsydra but I prefer those bands
While Genesis was the obvious influence on Fish, somebody who didn't know Strawbs but knew Marillion kept commenting how much certain songs of theirs sounded much like Marillion, which would be more accurately stated as the reverse

Chandelier the Swiss band? Or maybe they were German.  A long time ago I had an album by theirs on cd called "pure." It definitely sounded influenced by Marillion and I'm not really into clone bands but it was quite good.

I would think that a good amount of neo-prog bands were influenced by Marillion... even if they were almost comtemporaries... perhaps even more so for them. I would think that Marillion might have showed them that prog could still be done, at least.

And you can add Satellite (with members of Collage). Smile

And, a question to the ones who were fans of 90's neo-progressive rock:

Do you remember Abraxas (Poland) and Tale Cue (Italy) ? i Think they were influenced by Fish and Marillion.
